Je suis un membre de la guilde d'auteurs catholique et aussi un éducateur et un laïc catholique. Je suis très dévoué et consacré aux Sainte Jehanne d'Arc et Sainte Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus. J'habite en Amérique.I am an insignificant Catholic layman sharing the story of my journey on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
Le Royaume Béni des Ste. Jehanne et Ste. Thérèse is "The Kingdom Blessed of St. Joan and St. Thérèse" shown to me by these two magnificent saints like gates opening on an astonishingly beautiful Castle shining from the peak of a panoramic mountain. Le Royaume reflects my joy in living out the traditional French School of Catholic Spirituality under the friendship, sisterly care, and co-patronage of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux. Le Royaume is about seeking, loving, and defending the Kingdom of God as reflected in the mystical union between Heaven and the Kingdom of France. This (t)radition of France as the "Eldest Daughter of the Church," glorified in St. Joan of Arc's divinely appointed mission, points nobly to the resplendent beauty of French Catholic spirituality and in general to the dogmatic (T)raditions of the Church, such as True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin (hyper-dulia) and devotion to the saints (dulia). Le Royaume celebrates the medieval faith and culture of France; yet, it is, at the same time, not bound by a particular point in history. It is eternal as a Form in the Immaculate Heart of Mary who holds the fleur-de-lys close to her heart.
This Kingdom of Sts. Joan and Thérèse is "La France Mystique," the mystical Kingdom of France, which Kingdom, through the consecration of France to the Virgin Mary in 1638 by King Louis XIII and by the later decrees of Popes Pius XI (for St. Joan of Arc) and Pius XII (for St. Thérèse), belongs to the Virgin Mary with our saintly sisters as secondary co-patronesses. It uniquely emanates with what I describe as "the most beautiful color in the heavens," that is, the combined spirituality of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux as they guide us in their saintly and sisterly care on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed to the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary where Jesus Christ is enthroned in all of His glory.
If you would like to know how it is that St. Joan and St. Thérèse, under the Queenship and Motherly care of the most Holy Virgin, brought me to this astonishing Kingdom, you can find my books under the J&T Publications tab, or I strongly encourage you to visit The Dove and Rose, an entire website oriented to this devotion to our saintly sisters.
Below are the Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles of Le Royaume. Also visit the page, Dix Points du Royaume (Ten Points of "Le Royaume") which summarizes the key principles and the substance of this mystical Kingdom. That substance is simply a particular manifestation of the Kingdom of God we have been instructed to seek (Mt 6:33). Your experience in the Holy Catholic Church may not be the same as reflected here. "In my Father's house there are many mansions" (Jn 14:2). Nevertheless it might be. On any account, it is possible that your life depends on consecrating yourself to the most Holy Virgin Mary. I know mine does. St. Joan and St. Thérèse are anxious to lead you there. Vive le Royaume de France Mystique!
Le Vision, le Mission, et les Principes du Royaume:
(Le Royaume's Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles:)
Le Royaume's problem focus:
"Confusion about the Catholic Church stemming out of the contemporary apostasy from true Christian belief and practice is resulting in a metaphorical veil covering over the sensible and timeless mystical beauty of the Catholic Church. In addition this confusion is obscuring, purposefully and deceptively, the objective truth that there is no salvation outside the Catholic Church, the only institution on the face of the earth divinely founded by Christ Himself, Who is true God and true man, and the only Savior of the human race. Therefore, many souls whose salvation is in jeopardy have no objective opportunity to make a rational and willful choice for the essential salvific Truth of Catholicism. This spiritual disorientation in modern society leads many to see, and even prefer to see at times, only the "weeds" in the Church and not the "wheat." Many souls are lost for the Church due to this obfuscation of her essential Truth and immortal, heavenly beauty. The extended result of this loss of souls for the Church is that our culture, country, and civilization, which are made up of those individual souls, are lost to her as well."
Le Royaume's purpose:
"Le Royaume seeks to unveil the mystical beauty and majesty of the Catholic Church with her essential salvific Truth for the conversion and salvation of souls by evangelically advocating Traditional French Catholicism and the Renaissance of Catholic France as a living, unique, dynamic, and magnificently beautiful spiritual charism in the Church. Le Royaume hopes to make present in modern society the reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary's mystical Kingdom of France in union with the holy and beautiful combined spirituality of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux that others might have an opportunity to experience traditional Catholicism as they never have before. In addition, Le Royaume hopes to introduce to those souls the history of the French Catholic Monarchy and its implications for a modern Catholic Monarchy to govern temporal society where Christ in His Church is given preeminent consideration in establishing societal norms. Finally, Le Royaume promotes Our Lady's mystical Kingdom of France that she might eradicate the very heresies, erroneous pagan New Age spiritualities, and other satanic illusions which are the source of the world's spiritual disorientation. "
Le Royaume's methods:
"Foremost, Le Royaume seeks the conversion of individual souls by encouraging them to travel the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed of Roman Catholicism in the sisterly and saintly care of Sts. Joan of Arc and Thérèse of Lisieux. Le Royaume uses writing, speaking, and thoughtful engagement with social media as primary channels of communication to encourage others to join hands with St. Joan and St. Thérèse as they lead us to the Kingdom of Mystical France in the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary where Jesus Christ reigns in all His glory. From individual conversion, Le Royaume seeks through these same channels the general conversion of our culture, country, and civilization by creating supportive associations of the like-minded seeking peaceful change through the free acts of converted souls. In further support of all the above, Le Royaume leverages these channels to promote the essential salvific Truth of the Catholic Church, thereby helping to clear away the dark satanic spiritual smoke disorienting the world so that others might have a clear view of the Kingdom of God on earth, the Holy Catholic Church."
Le Royaume's resulting Mission Statement:
"Set your hearts on his Kingdom first, and on God's saving justice, and all these other things will be given you as well." (Mt 6:33) "Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." (Mt 6:9-10).
Le Royaume's particular Vision Statement born of the traditional mystical relationship between the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joan of Arc, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and the Kingdom of France:
"The sovereign establishment on earth as it is in Heaven of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Kingdom of France bathed in the mystically beautiful light of the combined spirituality of Sts. Joan of Arc and Thérèse of Lisieux."
Le Royaume's Motto:
"Seek the Kingdom, Love the Kingdom, Defend the Kingdom!"
Le Royaume's Treasures:
"Faith, Hope, and Love"

Le Royaume's Goals.
is God's will that inferior beings should be helped by all those that
are above them, wherefore we ought to pray not only to the higher but
also to the lower saints; else we should have to implore the mercy of
God alone... for the Divine Order is such that lower beings receive an
overflow of the excellence of the higher, even as the air receives the
brightness of the sun...we pray to the saints, whether angels or men,
not that God may through them know our petitions, but that our prayers
may be effective through their prayers and merits." (St. Thomas Aquinas,
Summa Theologica, IIa, IIae, Question 83, Article 11)
